What if I need a legal DNA test?

Our answer:

In addition to personal information home DNA tests, our sister service www.dadcheckgold.com provides legal or Court approved paternity DNA tests.

dadcheck®gold is on the Ministry of Justice official list for legal parentage (maternity and paternity) test.  These can be used for the following reasons, for example:

  • Birth Certificate changes
  • Immigration DNA test for the Home Office or Passport Office
  • A maternity DNA test (generally required for Immigration applications)
  • DNA test required for the Family Courts
  • CSA/CMA requirements
  • DNA tests on deceased persons (forensic DNA testing)
  • Surrogacy DNA tests for a Parental Order
  • Sperm donor testing (alleged father and child)

If you have a solicitor (or social services are involved) and they are dealing with your DNA testing case, then please direct them to dadcheck®gold or to contact the team on 0191 543 6334 or sales@dadcheckgold.com
